Coal Plant Owners Invest In Upstate New York's Biggest Solar Farm

By

The company behind a coal-fired plant in New York is getting into the solar industry. Cayuga Operating Company (COC) is in the process of opening up the largest solar farm in Upstate New York. It will create a significant source of energy while also spawning many job opportunities.

Cayuga Solar will be opening up in Tompkins County next to the coal plant. The idea was formed when the planning department discovered that the area could generate around 270 megawatts of energy from the sun at full capacity. 18 megawatts from 75 acres of solar panels will be the size of this solar farm, which will cost $25 million and should be able to power over 3,000 homes.
